7 Gifts for Disorganized Friends
We all have that one friend who could use some help organizing their life. Not only is their house in disarray, but it seems like they’re always forgetting about important dates and running 20 minutes behind schedule.
Or maybe this person sounds like you and you’re looking for products that might help you become more organized so you’re not known as the “disordered friend.”
